What do the following stories all have in common?


Christians Attacked

One of the most underreported aspects of Palestinian Arab affairs — attacks and discrimination against Christians by Muslims — finally broke through the news fog yesterday after hundreds of Muslim men attacked a Christian village near Ramallah and set fire to houses and vehicles. "More than 500 Muslim men, chanting Allahu akbar [God is great], attacked us at night," the Jerusalem Post quoted a resident saying, "they poured kerosene on many buildings and set them on fire. Many of the attackers broke into houses and stole furniture, jewelry and electrical appliances." A statue of the Virgin Mary was also destroyed in the attack that started Saturday night and lasted until the early hours of Sunday morning.

The men reportedly attacked after learning of a romance that had been taking place between a Muslim woman and Christian man from the village. The liaison reportedly ended when the Muslim woman’s family allegedly killed her for having the romance.An autopsy had been carried out on the dead woman’s body by Palestinian Arab authorities and, according to the Agence France-Presse, it was found that the woman had been poisoned and was five months pregnant. After the autopsy showed the reason for her death the Muslims went on the rampage.

Meanwhile her lover, the Guardian reports,was arrested byArab police and put in “protective custody” where his family says he is regularly beaten. Some liberal American Christian denominations have recently been announcing their intentions to divest from Israel. It’ll be illuminating to see whether this will stir them to divest from the West Bank.

Palestinians Torch Empty Synagogues

Chaos as Gazans Flood Into Settlements

— Associated Press

RAFAH, Gaza Strip — Joyous Gazans flooded into empty Jewish settlements yesterday and Palestinian Arabs climbed ropes and clambered over walls dividing this border town to join a chaotic celebration of the end of 38 years of Israeli military rule over the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians torched empty synagogues in the Morag, Kfar Darom and Netzarim settlements, as well as a Jewish seminary in Neve Dekalim. Later, a Palestinian bulldozer knocked down the walls of the Netzarim synagogue.

In Netzarim, two young Palestinian Arabs waving flags stomped on the smoldering debris outside the synagogue,and others took turns hitting the building with a large hammer.


As soldiers poured out of Gaza throughout the night, jubilant Palestinian Arabs rushed into the abandoned settlements, turning the night sky orange as fires blazed. Women shrieked in joy, teens set off fireworks and crowds chanted, "God is great!"

"Today is a day of joy and happiness that our people were deprived of in the past century," Mr. Abbas said, adding that the Palestinians still have a long path toward statehood.

Aren't you the careful thinker, though.

The torching of synagogues story has me puzzled: I thought that the Israelis were bulldozing all buildings in Gaza before they left. Why did they leave the synagogues?

The other two stories have nothing to do with one another -- unless you happen to think of all Muslims in racist terms. Then, I guess, you'd toss every news story from much of the rest of the world into one pot and call it supper.

Racist troll.
